What a trip it takes you on- from the conquest of Mexico to the popes of renaissance Europe, King Henry VIII, tennis and a ball made from Anne Boleyn's hair, all woven together with a match between Caravaggio and a Spanish poet, the outcome of which isn't revealed until the end. Something to savor and enjoy throughout

Very funny, and fast paced, if odd.
